Let's be honest.  Riding on a moving and perhaps unpredictable animal through a habitat that is filled with other moving and unpredictable animals, some of which can eat you, others which can stomp on you and the odd one that might bite you, may not seem to some like the most sensible idea.  Frankly, my crazy younger days of taking serious and sometimes stupid risks are well and truly behind me.  I'm a mother of two small boys and I can't afford to die.  My safari guests are often my friends and I don't want anyone getting hurt.  No way.  Not on my watch.
